I love using video clips as a quick way to introduce background knowledge, or introduce a visual/audible example of business/marketing concepts. The most effective use of video however, is when my students are responsible to show evidence of their learning by capturing their work on my class iPads. Students have used aps like iMovie to create compelling commercials, presentation clips, etc. Here is a great example of how my entrepreneur students made commercials for their food truck businesses they created.

Hi Jozi! You wrote that students show evidence of the learning on video, and you found that effective. Do students share their learning just with you or with other students? I know Daniel V mentioned video and student reflection. We may be on to something.

Hi Val! Students share their learning with each other in class and then my classes share with each other as well. When all of the commercials were completed (as in this particular assignment,) we had an "Academy Awards" where students and administrators voted on the commercials, complete with popcorn! They are now also part of their virtual portfolios that they built throughout the class time.

I love this idea! It is authentic learning, it involves the school community, and it has a dual purpose as a portfolio artifact. Very nice. And I bet the kids had a blast creating the videos. My AP students often cite one video project on iMovie as something that was really powerful for them. Val - I do think we are on to something! Daniel V and Carly B are speaking the same language!

Hi Jozi! Welcome to the RDC and so excited that you joined the fun! I also have my students capture their skills throughout the school year with video. I love your idea of using a virtual portfolio. My department has been thinking about using linguafolio next year. Any suggestions for housing student videos virtually from your experiences?

I attended KySTE (Kentucky Society for Technology in Education) back in March where I attended a presentation on using iMovie in the classroom. I have been using flipped learning and a natural progression seemed to allow students to make some of the instructional videos. I think this would be a great task for my gifted students or as a another form of assessment instead of the traditional paper and pencil assessment.

Natalie - that progression really does make sense. I often struggle to differentiate appropriately for gifted students. This is giving me a few ideas for next year.

I like this idea, because viewing a clip, instead of an entire class period allows me to imagine how I might use the same strategy or approach in my own classroom. If I'm required to watch a video over five minutes long, I'd prefer to read the transcript instead -- clips are a wonderful way to show something new without putting me to sleep!
